The 24-year-old forward has been a regular source of goals in the Scottish Football League over recent years and will now get the chance to push for a dream move to England.

A number of SPL sides were believed to be keen on taking a look at Doris, who recently caught the eye during a cup meeting with Celtic, but Birmingham have edged to the front of the queue.

Doris is to spend a week training with the Championship club and Arbroath boss Paul Sheerin is convinced his main source of goals can be a success at St Andrew's.

He said in the Daily Record: "Birmingham watched him a few times and saw him against Celtic. Now they want a closer look.

"He's been outstanding for the past few years and I'm surprised more Scottish clubs haven't had a nibble at him.

"He's good enough to step up and I know he won't let himself down when he goes to Birmingham."

e'll be fine, no problem. If they do get relegated, he's definitely going to ask how anyone could ever have thought that Villa were going to be fine given their problems before he came.

toke though. Hmn. I don't think it was defending that made people dislike Stoke so much as the out and out cheating/nastiness they regularly displayed. That, and they kept buying the odd flair player and then ruining them (Oh! Tuncay, what were you thinking?).

ell that really inspires me with confidence. No point in training, deciding on a coherent formation, or playing players in their best positions, let's just hope we get lucky.
